Title: Clove hitch with two riding turns

Does a clove hitch with two riding turns have a name? I haven't found any info for this hitch on the internet.

Thanks for the link. I've gone through several topics on the IGTY forums, very informative!

I think that Clove Hitch with Two Riding Turns is an unambiguous, albeit cumbersome, name for this clove hitch variation. Assigning a reference number, something like ABOK#____, would be helpful as multiple variations could reasonably be named Double Clove Hitch.

"Double clove hitch" comes to mind.
Then again, taking a different angle on this
--notably, on loading the structure-
comes discussion here:

"Double clove hitch makes a lot of sense, since a constrictor knot with two riding turns is known as a "double constrictor". And with one additional tuck, that is what you would have.
